"Becoming a part of R.A.C.E. was something inevitable for me.  I love working with kids and making a difference in their lives. Since R.A.C.E. is a community service organization, I have the opportunity to help children in more ways than one. The community service events that R.A.C.E. participates in, such a Habitat for Humanity allows me to do the things that are right in my life instead of wrong and keeps me humble."

 I decided to join R.A.C.E. because it seemed like an outgoing organization with a great vibe. I really enjoyed the community service that they do around the Albany area, and being away from home I started to miss my siblings. Since R.A.C.E. is strongly connected with different schools, and students from different backgrounds I felt like this would be a great way to still get that intimate sibling connection that I have at home. R.A.C.E. holds tons of excitement and engaging activities which make the biggest difference in many kids lives. "

Volunteer Organization(s):  

  "My urge to join the organization Reclassifying All Children Equally (R.A.C.E.) stemmed from my desire to make a difference in society. Children are without a doubt the future. Hence, as an individual wanting to positively impact society I found it important to work with them. Through mentoring, tutoring, and more, R.A.C.E allows children to unlock their potential. It encourages them to further their education and develop important attributes, which are necessary to be successful. The children's confidence levels are surged through R.A.C.E's interactions with them and this ensures me that they will go on to do outstanding acts in society. This insight made me want to be a part of Reclassifying All Children Equally, and continues to be my drive for continuing to be a part of the organization."

"I joined R.A.C.E. because I not only wanted to participate in various community service events, but I also wanted to become a mentor to a child in need. R.A.C.E. has a direct connection with multiple schools and programs where you can interact with children. This was the most appealing aspect that made me join this student organization at school. Becoming a mentor has been one of the greatest experiences I've had here at the University at Albany. Just having an impact on a child’s life is a reward in and of itself.

Volunteer Organization(s):  

  "I chose to join R.A.C.E. because this organization is directly in line with the path that I wish to follow for my future career. Working with children has always been a strong passion of mine because they are the future, and our job as young adults is to teach them what we have learned through our tough journey called LIFE. I love working with children, and it brings me great joy to receive the opportunity to make a positive impact in a child's life. Taking the time to talk and  guide young minds is all that is needed to keep children on the right path to a bright future. I want to help out as many children as I can, so that one day when I become a future teacher and principal, I can say that I lived my life helping the younger generations understand what it takes to be phenomenal."

Volunteer Organization(s):

"R.A.C.E. was one of the first interest meetings I attended my freshman year. Immediately, I was drawn to the mission of R.A.C.E., which is helping the inner city children of Albany. The best part of joining race was becoming a mentor because I developed a close relationship to my mentee. I’ve also enjoyed a lot of the community service work we have done around the campus, and community and I am eagerly awaiting the new school year to begin all of our new projects for this year."

"I have been interested in helping out in my community from a young age and have specifically wanted to help out the children. R.A.C.E. is the perfect group for me because its main goal is to help at risk youth realize that they are worth something and that they can have a future that's more positive than what is expected of them. The children of the community are the future of this world. They need guidance to lead them in the right direction, which is something I have always believed in and what R.A.C.E. is all about."
